  • This course is about 50% hands-on lab and 50% lecture, with extensive programming exercises designed to reinforce core object oriented Java development skills, concepts and best practices learned in the lessons. Our courses include ample materials and labs to ensure all students are either appropriately challenged, or assisted, at all times - no matter their skill level.
Course Info:
This course is geared for developers who have prior working knowledge of object-oriented programming languages such as C++. You will learn the best practices for writing great object-oriented programs in Java 8, using sound development techniques, new improved features for better performance, and new capabilities for addressing rapid application development. In addition to the normal exercises that are liberally sprinkled throughout the course, there is a case study that covers the entire spectrum from use cases to object-oriented design to implemented classes. This case study supplements the course and can be used during and after the course as a reference and a tool for reviewing and practicing what was learned in class.
